Missing two basal or four bolus insulin doses in a fortnight is linked with a clinically significant >5% decrease in time with glucose levels in range in patients with diabetes, a real-world study shows.

European doctors also found that the likelihood of missing at least one basal or bolus dose in a two-week period was 18% and 99%, respectively.
